I. Important Disclosures

The information provided through this Site is for personal, non-commercial use and display.  OrbiMed does not intend to provide investment advice through this Site and does not represent that any securities or investment vehicles discussed on the Site are suitable for any investor.  Investors are advised not to rely on any information contained in this Site in the process of making an investment decision.  OrbiMed does not, and this Site does not intend to, render tax or legal advice.  OrbiMed does not give any advice or make any representations as to whether any investment, investment strategy or investment style is suitable for you or will be profitable.

The material on this Site does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, advisory services, any securities or any interests in investment funds managed by OrbiMed or any of its affiliates.  Offerings of securities or fund interests are made only by a prospectus or private offering memorandum by persons who are authorized to do so.  Except as otherwise indicated in these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy or elsewhere on this Site:  (a) the Site is not intended for use by, or to provide any information to, investors or other individuals outside of the United States, including any individuals in the European Union, and such investors and other individuals should not rely on any information or material appearing on the Site; and (b) although the content presented on this Site may be translated into languages other than English, it remains targeted to U.S. investors and has not been reviewed for conformity with the laws of any other country, and OrbiMed makes no representations or warranties that such content is applicable or appropriate for use in locations outside of the United States.  OrbiMed reserves the right to require proof of residence from any user accessing the Site and requesting information from OrbiMed via e-mail.  Investors outside of the United States may be subject to securities and tax regulations within their applicable jurisdictions that are not addressed on this Site.  U.S. investors should be advised that not all investments discussed on this Site may be available in all states.

There is no assurance that any securities discussed herein are, or will remain, in an OrbiMed-managed portfolio.  Any such securities do not represent an entire fund or portfolio and it should not be assumed that they were or will be profitable, or that the investment recommendations or decisions OrbiMed makes in the future will be profitable or will equal the investment performance of such securities.  Past performance is not indicative of future results.

II. Specific Disclosures to PRC Residents Only

This Site has not been filed with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China ("PRC" or "China," for the purposes of these Terms of Use, excluding Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) or any of its local counterparts, and we believe Chinese law does not require us to do so.

Other than the Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor license held by OrbiMed Advisors LLC and the registration certificate of the Shanghai Representative Office of OrbiMed Asia Limited, neither OrbiMed nor any of the OrbiMed's funds referred to on the Site has obtained any license, filing, registration or regulatory approvals in China and we believe Chinese law does not require us to do so.  The information and materials provided through this Site shall by no means constitute an offer, an invitation or solicitation of an offer or conclusion of a contract in China (it being understood, however, that these Terms of Use nevertheless constitute a binding agreement).  Nothing on this Site should be taken or construed as a representation, warranty or undertaking made by us to a PRC investor in respect of the legality of an investment in any of our funds by the PRC investor, the tax consequences or the relevant foreign exchange matters to the PRC investor of such an investment, or the suitability of such investment for the PRC investor from the PRC law perspective.  A PRC investor should consult its own legal, accounting, tax and other professional advisers in this regard.
